Cutting back yarrow

hibiscusfan zone5-Northwest Ohio(5 northwest Ohio)July 31, 2014

I planted yarrow in my iris beds and it grew to about four and a half foot and shaded my iris from the sun. Can I cut yarrow back in the spring so it doesn't get so tall?

Definitely you can do this.

To be honest, I don't think yarrow is afraid of anything. Go ahead and whack it back: chances are it'll just keep on truckin'.

I had a patch of it one year and the lawn boy I hired didn't know it was a plant and mowed right over it. . . to the ground. . . when it came back it was prettiest it had ever been. . . you can trim it all season in my opinion. . .
